Inspiration

I was inspired by the beauty and grace of swallows in flight and the poem by Ted Hughes - 'Work and Play' which begins 'The swallow of summer, she toils all the summer, A blue-dark knot of glittering voltage, A whiplash swimmer, a fish of the air.
The poem compares the swallows work and play to that of humans.
